Catherine Lievens - Oliver 72

Oliver

(Whitedell Pride 06)
by

Catherine Lievens

What matters is not what you are, but who you are.

Oliver is human, or at least he was until the Glass Research Company kidnapped him and experimented on him. Now he has a bear sharing his mind, but he’s not able to shift, and he’s confused. Is he a shifter, or a human? What’s worse, he’s getting sicker every day, and no one seems to know how to help him. He can’t even bond with his mate because he doesn’t want Sebastian to hurt if something happens to him.

Sebastian wants his mate to be cured, and the only way to do that is to go to New York and kidnap one of the company’s scientist. With the help of his pride brothers, he manages to do just that, but having Oliver cured doesn’t mean all their problems are over.

Oliver will have to deal with learning how to shift and trying to convince Sebastian that he’s fine and that he can be claimed, but once he manages to do that, other problems arise. Will the two lovers finally have the time to just be together, or will the pressure push them apart?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: First off this is a re-release story. Now I admit that this is one hell of a hot and sexy story, however it was too short for me. I have read many of Caitlin’s stories and was a bit disappointed by this one. I wanted to know more about Ben and Eli before they meet Micah. It tells of what they are wanting and how Eli was the one that was hinting at it. However to me this story should have a bit more leading up to it.

Ben and Eli had found a young woman being attacked. So they saved her, but once they got home they knew something was up. It turned out that she was in fact a man. A very young and gorgeous man whom Eli wanted with them. They had agreed that they wanted one that would stick around permanently. It took a bit for Ben to actually want what Eli but once he took a look at Micah he was turned the hell on.

Micah comes off a bit more strongly than the others to me. He is more forceful and very open with what he wants. Get these three men going and damn hot is all I can say.

It is a good story but not for me. I want more in-depth and structure then what this story gave me. It was really good for being a novella though.

I would recommend reading it though. Especially if you love a good threesome.

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: Hamm was bitten during a fight and now has been having some weird things going on since. When he feels someone following him he gets annoyed fast. When he finally confronts his follower he is not expecting what he gets. Danny is a happy, bouncy twink who makes Hamm feel a little better, even if he is talking crazy about wolves and things.

Once the full moon proves to Hamm that Danny is right about everything, the attraction between the two of them cannot be denied. After a very hot and steamy night together both Hamm and Danny they are more than just a passing thing.

This was a sweet little story. The sex is what I am used to from Sean Michael. Hot and very sexy with little BDSM elements thrown in to spice things up even more. The two MCs are both interesting and well suited for each other. The writing is fast paced with a lot of humor.

Overall another enjoyable read from this author.

Loved this story. Intense at times and sweet at others. Matt and Jason seemed like a cute couple. Glad they got together in the end.

Reviewer: Cat

Blurb: After a near fatal car crash leaves him scarred both physically and emotionally, Matt Harmon finds the solitude of his huge, lonely house too much to bear. Hiring Nurse James Hayden to look after him seems like the best idea for Matt, whose fierce independence has been compromised by his injuries.

The two men clash from the start as James struggles to help Matt rebuild his shattered body and heal his crushed soul. The bond they form is forged in fire and ice, and the wounds they inflict on one another can only be erased by Matt’s admission that he can’t live without James’s loving touch.

Will Matt realize too late that James is the only one who can rescue him from himself?

This is a previous release.

Purchase Link: http://www.extasybooks.com/scarlet-blackwell/Rescue-Me/

Review: (Warning. This book does contain some violence and harsh language. The blurb above pretty much explains the story so I won’t repeat it.

Matt has some deep-seated anger issues. He is spoiled, conceited, homophobic, and downright mean. I can see why after the accident he is like this but it is evident that this isn’t new for him.

James is almost too good to be true and can see inside Matt something no one else can.

I absolutely loved this story. Yes, I know Matt is a horrible person and mean, but I love a good, bad boy antagonist and Matt fits the bill. He had to have some good in him for his friends to be so loyal.

I love a story where the knight in shining armor is the underdog that comes in to save the big bad meanie. And James was a wonderful example of this. James may have been almost too good to be true but he shows us later on that he can hold his own.

Once you start reading this book you can’t put it down. I was up to the wee hours of morning to see what would happen next. There was twist after twist. I will say I was pleased with the ending.

If you like angst. Lots of angst, mean antagonists, spoiled rich brats, sexy sweet male nurses, and lots of very hot mansex this is definitely for you.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in Whitedell Pride collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Catherine can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Catherine.

There is something about the way that Catherine tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect the ones they love with all that they have. I had a blast reading this story.

Jeremy has been a single dad for three years, since his ex-wife had stated she didn’t want him and took off. He loved his son but some days Adam was a lot to handle. Which is how he ended up taking Jeremy with him to the store. Thank goodness for the sweet young man helping him. Although the man who was with Jaime was downright hot. Now isn’t that a surprise, he is not gay but damn this man turns him on.

Denver was only with the pride to help them with security, so when he met his mate, he tried to stay away. It wasn’t till Jeremy accidently started the mating process that Denver knew he had to get to know his mate. That and learn about children real fast, cause damn a three-year-old can move fast. When Jeremy’s ex shows up wanting her son, things are about to heat up real fast. It would seem his ex had a secret of her own. Denver knew he would do everything to keep his mate and new son safe.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Catherine puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a just a touch of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, and loving.

Review: Jesse and Milan are both trying to cope with their losses. Their friend Reggie suggests they all work together to Help Milan get his candy ready for Outfest. These two seemed so lost yet perfect to help the other move on and start living again.

Loved the hot chemistry between Milan and Jesse. I really felt for the both of them. But was so glad they found each other when they needed the other the most. Sweet story.

The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect the ones they love with all that they have. I had a blast reading this story.

Tristan is an albino alligator and had been held captive for some time in a freak circus. He had been kicked out by his family and his alpha for being albino. It wasn’t until they were saved that he got to actually live his life. He wanted to help bring those that wanted to capture, torture, use or kill. His job was not hard, get Bud to give him the answers to his questions. He knew someone would start asking questions about him, but he had not known that the gorgeous detective asking questions was to be his mate.

Collin knew all about shifters, vampires, and gargoyles. He was told to find out the answers about the man missing, but he also knew he could not give them the truth. He had to protect the paranormal world. He had not expected to come across a gorgeous man telling him that he was his mate.

The problem was he was not out, so he had to decide what he truly wanted. And he definitely wanted Tristan.

The dangers were out there, now they just had to protect those they love. When Collin and Tristan get together, it is so damn hot. I have always loved a good paranormal, and Charlie sure can give you some amazing shifter types. I think that this is one of the first books that I have read about an albino alligator. I had a blast reading it that is for sure.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Charlie puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is the third book in this series and they need to be read in order.

It is a pretty good story but a bit hard to truly get into. I do admit though that it caught my attention from the moment I started reading and it kept it all the way to the end. However, the characters were what had given me the difficulties. It moves too fast with the characters.

Hunter and Rolan were from two different areas and were not encouraged to become friends. However once they met, they did indeed become friends, then lovers, then mates and in the end fireheart mates. Once it was known that they were together, they had come to the decision to leave their homes and make their way. All the while, the shade was trying to find freedom from its prison. Separated into three shards, it could be captured, but once it is together all bets are off.

The last shard had found a host, a human who would not live long. He needed the body of a wolven. Hunter was the one he chose and it was up to Rolan to get help. He had went to his friends and they searched for the answers. Would Hunter survive or would Rolan loose the man he loves.

It just goes to fast for me. If it had been more detailed and put into a longer book then I might be more inclined to love it. I would recommend it though, because there is nothing better than two gorgeous men, shape shifters, excitement, adventure, action, danger, and hot sex. I liked reading it and look forward to reading more from this author. It is an entertaining story that will give you a little bit of all the emotions.
